We had planned to go to Captain Anderson's seafood restaurant, but it was closed on Sunday evening, so we went here instead. The atmosphere was very nice, but the service was slow, and the food was a disappointment. The cioppino did not taste fresh. The Baja shrimp were overcooked and the tampenade was very unappealing. Not even my traditional frozen... More

My husband and I were looking forward to lunch at our favorite dockside place, but much to our dismay, they closed. We noticed a new venue next door and decided to give it a try. The Marina Cantina was a pleasant surprise. I had the shrimp tacos and my husband had the grouper dinner after the calamari appetizer. Both were... More

Went to eat there with my family and had a great overall experience. Alex was our server and did an amazing job. He suggested the Chicken Chap-patula and it was one of the best things I have ever ate. The view overlooking the bay is beautiful. We will be going there again.

My wife and I frequent Marina Cantina and love the food and ambiance. Sitting by a window overlooking the boats and water is a must! It is great for a couples dinner or a group get-together. The chicken chapatula is excellent and my wife loves their dinner salads. The drinks are good as well. Overall, this is one of the... More

Service was fantastic and friendly, Jennifer our server was kind and accurate with our order and very knowledgable of the menu and food allergies. She gave many solutions on how to eat gluten free and made exceptions with my order to ensure it was prepared accurately. Food was made to order with perfection and portions were larger than the average... More

We went into Marina Cantina for a simple quick lunch from work. We had a great server, very helpful and laid back. She was very knowledgeable on the menu and our service was quick and all accurate, even with one of the meals being a special request ticket. The manager also stopped by our table and was very helpful and... More

It's a decent place for a dine out or night out with family or friends. The Friday's free margarita and Latin Music night is just a sales pitch! The free margaritas consist of sour lemonade, and you can only order them at the bar. They close the kitchen at around 9:00 pm so you better get there early in order... More

After all of the other lackluster dinner restaurants in PCB I was pleasantly surprised with this place. Beautiful view of the marina and fresh, tasty food as well.
